Trash Can Art Appears

We are pleased to welcome some big-bellied residents to the Cultural District:  they are the dozens of new Big Belly Trash Cans installed by the SOMA West Community Benefit District all around the neighborhood, many featuring artwork submitted by our Cultural District on behalf of local leather, kink and queer artists.

Here are pictures of just a few of those trash cans:

The images below were submitted to the CBD and initially accepted though not used.  We are currently in discussion with the artists and the CBD about possible modified use of these images.

UPDATE (3/8/2024):

A new Big Belly Trash Can has been installed at 12th and Harrison Street, right on the corner of Eagle Plaza, featuring the work of one of the previously rejected artists.  We are pleased to welcome Axeish’s art to our streets!
